Vesper is for real by Nambroth Vesper is for real by Nambroth
I've loved costumes since I was a tiny person, and my parents would have to deal with me having Halloween every day of the year. The love is still there, but adulthood requires a lot of time and money flow to other interests and requirements. But, I've always wanted to make myself a cool bird or gryphon costume. A dragon would be cool too, but like many birds, the long and elegant neck is not within my skill range to create at this point!

So, given the opportunity, I decided to make a crazy Vesper costume! [link]
Vesper is a character I've had for a while now (she's also a dragon) that has appeared in :iconwindsonde:. She.. uh. yeah.

So I made this nonsense entirely with exception to the 'blank' underneath, which is a resin base with hinges so the beak opens and closes as I open and close my mouth. :iconcrystacian: made the blank (she's awesome!) as I don't have a way to cast resin here, and then I sculpted and sanded and sculpted and sanded and painted and added fur and feathers and eyes and such.

I painted the gloves and carefully added all the talons.

Her shirt has fizzzzsssh on it.

This is very silly, but it's fun!

SPECIAL THANKS TO MY FRIEND MARTIN FOR TAKING THIS PHOTO!
